The single malt from Aultmore Distillery has rarely been seen, the whisky being made there a favourite of blenders. It possesses strong Speyside characteristics such as fragrance on the nose, with a substantial palate.
This tastes like the encore from your favourite artist, big, bold, and beautiful. Expect aromas of malty, sweet barley, orchard fruits, forest floor and toasted oak. The palate gives shiny notes of blood oranges, woody spices, and an array of festive spices. The finish is huge, with shimmering fruitiness and spice arriving in a grand finale. A truly substantial dram.
